Integrated Approach Pilot

  1. 1. IAP 3: Sustainable Cities  Urgency to integrate global environmental considerations and resilience into city management through planning, design, and action  Supporting goals of Multilateral Environmental Conventions  Going beyond traditional, single GEF focal area project
  2. 2. GEF-6 Proposed Sustainable Cities Integrated Approach Recognizing need to address urbanization as key driver of global environmental degradation and opportunity 1. Integrated policy and governance support 2. Demonstrations of sustainable cities initiatives 3. Financial mechanisms 4. Partnerships for dissemination and scale-up
  3. 3. Sustainable Cities IAP Common Platform An iterative, organic network program to bring together institutions and to encourage partnership 1. Sustainability plan • Clear, rolling plan that provides an assessment of challenges and opportunities at cities/metro area • Consistent with those spearheaded by partner institutions • Inclusion of global environmental benefits 2. Tools • Underpinning sustainability plan development and implementation • Partners and participating cities to agree to use same set of tools and metrics Partner A Programs Sustainability Plan Tool 3 Common data sets Partner C, D… Plans + policies Partner B
  4. 4. Possible Tools for Common Platform to Connect Urban Action to Global Impact 1. Common metrics and a consistent terminology, such as those included in ISO 37120 and the C40-ICLEI-WRI greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory; 2. Quantifying energy and material flows through urban metabolism assessments – resource efficient cities; 3. Identification of a hierarchy of urban management that prioritizes service provision, increasing resilience and decreasing emissions and environmental impact; 4. Identification of local and global system boundaries, consistent with the tenets of sustainable development and key limits such as climate change and biodiversity.
  5. 5. Sustainable Cities IAP Proposed Framework Global Coordination * Application of common platform, with a set of tools and common metrics and sustainability plan for country/city sub-programs * Knowledge management, good practice, sharing of lessons learned Country/city A: Each sub-programs with: • Integrated policy/strategy • Priority initiative demonstration • Financial mechanism piloting (with partners) • Partnerships and sharing of lessons • Others… Country/city B Country/city C Country/city D
  6. 6. Sustainable Cities IAP Process Program development • Consultative meeting (August 2014) • Announcement at UN SG’s Climate Summit • Common platform development • Country component development and consultation • Results framework development • Resource allocation Submission to GEF Council • Update to GEF Council • Technical clearance • Work Program submission (Spring 2015) Implementation • Updates to GEF Council • Sharing of lessons learned • Review to derive findings and recommendations (2018)
  7. 7. Resource Programming Total: $55 million from CCM, SFM and non-grant set asides • $10 million for global/regional programs • $45 million for country programs, to be matched 1:1 with STAR country allocations
